Another Collection in My Closet-Claudia Lobao

Sorry for the lack of posting and visiting! I've been down with a spring cold or allergies or something...my sinuses are so stuffed I can hardly think! I'm hoping to be back to normal soon. In the meantime...

I received my first piece of Claudia Lobao jewelry from my boyfriend about 4 years ago...

It was a complete surprise and this necklace is my favorite! The hammered gold is clean and contemporary, he made a perfect pick! (He's good that way.)

And while I favor the modern look above,

I can not resist her romantic crocheted styles either, which she's most well known for.

I love how delicate and light the crocheted pieces are, so perfect for spring!

In 2009 her work was displayed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York as part of the Calder Exhibit. (Rumor has it that Eva Langoria is a fan of the line as well.)

Bad photo, sorry! This bracelet gets so many compliments, I'll have to try for a better picture in an outfit post. (But hair and sweaters beware! It catches on everything!)

The majority of her work is done in gold, but just for a change of pace, I'd love a colorful piece like this. I have a LWD (little white dress) this would be perfect with!

Hmmm...Maybe laying in bed in my favorite Dior nightie with a bit of gold around my neck and a pile of fashion magazines to read will make me forget about being sick. (If only the headache, runny nose and mountain of dirty kleenex weren't there to remind me!)

I love them all! I've been getting into gold more recently because I love how far gold jewelry has come in the last few seasons.

You have an awesome boyfriend.
